Hoarder Trapped For 15 Hours After Belongings Fell On Top Of Her

The woman - believed to be in her late 70s or early 80s - was too frail to free herself from the pile and spent the whole night trapped under the mound. Fortunately, a neighbour became concerned that they had not seen her and called the police at around 9.30am on Monday.

Officers found the woman covered in her possessions, but required assistance from fire crews to free her. She was ultimately removed from the heap at around 12.30pm after firefighters used hydraulic equipment to remove items from the pile on top of her.

Paramedics subsequently checked her for injuries and she was taken to Liverpool Hospital in a stable condition. The woman is understood to suffer from a pre-existing illness, according to the Daily Mail.

Pictures taken from the scene showed heaps of bags and boxes spilling out of the woman's garage and onto her lawn.

She said: "I couldn't get to the toilet in time because I'd have to climb over all the rubbish so I started urinating in bottles.

"The cats were sleeping around me as well and they'd end up messing in certain corners of the bedroom. I created a hell basically to live in.

"I don't think it's that I can't throw stuff away - I can't be bothered to.

"I think it began when I moved in on my own. My place used to get untidy anyway, like everyone's does and then all of a sudden I had to put the bin out and I just thought 'oh my god'."

Thankfully, Sally-Ann's home is finally habitable - although it did take a total of four days to clear out a tonne of the rubbish she had accumulated.
